*Cemetery No. 23 ‑ Joe's Run Cemetery (Washington Dist.)

Location: From Ripley, go east on US Rt. 33, to Joe's Run County Road., Co. Rt. 14. Turn north into Rt. 14 (Joe's Run). Go .6 miles to fork of Rt 14 and Rt 14/5. Follow left fork of Rt 14 (Joes Run road). The cemetery is on the hill to the right of the road .3 mile from the fork of Rts 14 and 14/5.
Joe's Run church, formerly at the fork of 14, and 14/5 is no longer standing.

Condition: Cleared space top of hill, overgrown, not mowed. The cemetery is not fenced and covered with small pine trees that will take over the open and cleared space in a few years.  According to locals whom I met on the trail,  Joe's Run Church was knocked down when they built the culvert there at the intersection of 1875‑76.  The entrance to the graveyard is marked by a few red bricks stacked in a heap under the telephone wire about 100 yards from the big bushy tree near the intersection.  A lady on the trail said that there are many other people buried there, since it is a big cleared area, but not very many are marked.
